A couple weeks ago my friend Lindsay and I went to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. I love Sheep & Wool and look forward to it every year! There's so much to see it's hard to fit it all into one day.
There are lots of sheep!
And of course there is wool. I bought a few things...but I wanted to buy a LOT more than a few things. This is some Blue Faced Leicester (BFL) top, ready for spinning.
And some BFL locks, undyed.
And BFL dyed locks. (I think I need a few BFL ewes now)
The grayish wool is Masham (I had never heard of it before), and the blueish is Merino.
I got some assorted roving colors for adding to my fiber stash.
There was yarn everywhere. I loved the walls of yarn from this vendor.
LOTS of people.
Lots of good food...I always get a gyro.
There was a vendor there with amazing needle felted animals!
Lindsay and me
I got a chance to meet an online friend from a fiber forum. She lives in PA and traveled down to the festival. She was so nice, and she came down with a group of really nice women.
I already can't wait until next year's festival!
